I'd like to see them use Atom period. Also, a Hawkman and Atom team up short could be rad, too. So much from the 60s they could homage like "the slingshot" cover. :D
A Atom and Hawkman team-up could be the main long-running short. They seem to me much more important characters than Constantine, if he can, Hawkman and Atom too!
Also Hawkman will now be powered by the Black Adam movie.
It would be beautiful if this short happens! :D

I'd like to see them do more Charlton character shorts or stuff with some of the bigger "names" who usually don't get solo stuff like Zatanna, Black Canary, Vibe, the Hawks, etc.

I'd love to see a longer short that actually used the conceit of the late 80's Cary Bates and Patrick Broderick's Captain Atom run. Or a "second" Blue Beetle that actually translates the setting of the 2006 run that premiered Jaime Reyes. Plastic Man would be fun and a good way to experiment with visuals.

Give Elongated Man a short that's basically just him and Sue solving a case like their old Flash backups :).

Or even better, Detective Chimp :p.

So it seems like we're following rebooted Constantine having to deal with the ramifications of helping set off the 2nd Flashpoint into the Tomorrow-verse? Is this Tomorrow-verse Constantine o_O?

Is that actually Etrigan or is it some kind of demonic facsmilie of him? At 1:01 that looks like a demonic version of Zatanna, and I guess that's the woman John is seen sleeping with in another scene? All of these are fakes of people John knows :eek:?

At 0:56 it looks like he gets finger flicked by The Spectre :p.

My only point of contention is that...the animation really doesn't look that great in my opinion :(.

I was a little burnt out on the Tucker-verse/DCAMU, so a potential return to that world so soon (however limited) doesn't really do much to excite me. Of course, this short doesn't mean a proper return as this could be the Tomorrow-verse iteration of John, but I'd still prefer a complete fresh start.

However, I do wonder if the narrative they are starting here will impact the rumored Crisis on Infinite Earths animated trilogy.

I wonder if we should take this as indicative of what Tommorow-verse John, Etrigan, and Zatanna look like:

Recently actor James Hong was interviewed on Jimmy Kimmel. He's 93 but still going strong. Really cool!

For someone who's been around less than a year, Barbie Brooklyn Roberts has gotten plenty of (well deserved) attention.
According to zap2it, nick@nite will air Seinfeld starting early Tues May 31 2am-4am, that means Mom will be off the lineup after May 26.

I'm not sure why Nickelodeon tweet for SpongeBob movie airing tonight has nick@nite bug showing, technically it starts at 9pm, not 8pm
